Got two more Rypdal albums, Skywards which is kind of Descendre follow up, beautiful and Crime Scene, a live one but until today i didn't manage to listen to it from start to finish, a bit too much free to my taste with a lot of sampling....

Thank you, yes, that's the one. There was one side-long spacey/funk piece that I particularly liked on it.

What's really funny is that I reviewed it right after adding it to the correct location and mentioned in my review that it was a joke title. LOL  I am right on this am I not?  You'd be in the know as it were.

Not a high priority or I would have posted in E & O about it.  Someone not in the know was just trying to do a little clean up.
 
It is Terje Rypdal's joke - remember at the time of this album's release he was second only to AHa wrt sales in Norway - and AHa's sales were on the basis of singles......... but that is a very loose connection.  You're right, TR never released any singles as far as I'm aware - so a mickey-take on those who don't know.
The best eclectic music on the Web,8-11pm BST/GMT THURS.

For me, Descendre is his best LP. I love that early Rypdal phase, when ECM was fresh and bold.
Don't take me wrong, Rypdal is still great, but he's LPs, from late 70s and 80s, are something really awesome. It's the same thing with all ECM stars , that times were the best, IMO.

Maybe this will make your frowning poll smiley happy:



My Rypdals are on the top two shelves of the far right wood grain unit:

These are what they are:
Whenever I Seem To Be Far Away
After the Rain
Waves
Descendre
Blue
Singles Collection, The
Undisonus
If Mountains Could Sing
Skywards
Lux Aeterna
Vossabrygg

I unfortunately lost a few of my LPs in a house flood that aren't in this collection.





















They are all new to me except for the one with Vitous and Gurtu as I have the whole DVD.
